Shops and businesses in the East Surrey and North Sussex area were closed yesterday for the state funeral of Her Majesty The Queen.
A bank holiday across the UK was approved by King Charles III for his mother’s funeral on Monday; many local businesses closed to let their staff watch the state funeral, the first in the UK since that of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965.
The Belfry Shopping Centre in Redhill has presented a display for the past week showing the Queen’s portrait next to a vase of white lilies, and was among those which closed their doors yesterday.
